This handbook is written from a broad range of viewpoints, including the owner/developer’s, architect’s, contractor’s, subcontractor’s, construction manager’s, insurer’s, and lender’s. It focuses on the various technical and complex issues that are triggered by every contract for construction or related services and guides the contract negotiators and drafters to solutions for those issues. The chapters identify the issues and guide the parties through the maze of difficult concepts and choices, including bidding the contract; negotiating the contract and subcontracts; public-private partnerships; construction insurance; statutory construction payment procedure; labor issues; MBE, WBE, and DBE programs; environmental issues; LEED and green construction; industrial and EPC projects; and drafting alternative dispute resolution terms. With over 100 editable forms and sample contract clauses, this handbook will enhance the likelihood of a successful project and benefit the industry and the various industry professionals by the avoidance of disputes and the costly and unproductive expense of resolving those disputes.
